The first Keep Shelly in Athens single fronted by Myrtha — the singer who replaced co-founder Sarah P after she left to pursue other projects earlier this year — makes the duo’s second incarnation sound far more weightless and wistful than last year’s At Home LP. It’s no wonder why Myrtha mentions something about fading away in one of her verses; by the end of this song, it’s hard to not feel like we’re all floating in space, drifting alongside moon dust and comet detritus until the end of time.
